Fire in a hosting centre

The office of the american host "The Planet" had been devastated by a fire, thousands of websites are down.

A data centre has been destroyed, impacting 9000 servers. Nevertheless the building structure and most of the servers are intact.

The damage is estimated at nearly $ 900 000 says The Inquirer.

«In addition we have to repare the structures and a lot of hours of work for the employes, wich at least will cost hundreds of thousands dollars for The Planet and its insurance.»
